Dress: Zara // Bag: Pour La Victoire // Shoes: Steve Madden, similar here // Earrings: Leslie Danzis // Bracelets: JCrew, Neimen Marcus // Sunglasses: Dolce & Gabbana, similar here

Something about black and white together just looks awesome, so clean and classic!  The stripes on this Pour La Victoire bag remind me of vintage posters from the 20s and 30s of people in their bathing suits at the beach and I was inspired to go with that retro theme when styling it up with a cute-as-a-cupcake Zara dress. My latest obsession–Steve Madden strappy black wedges-complimented the stripes and gave me a much needed height boost…always a win in my opinion!
